Is there a 4-H club or something that you could give it to? That's what I would do.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

There is a great Therapudic *sp* riding center in my area, and I would be willing to help out with shipping. Not a problem.

It is this place right here:

Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center: Home

They are a fabulous facility, where they are toally on donation based only. This is where I am considering donating Nelson to when he is ready to retire.

I am more than happy to help.

Opening Gaits is a therapeutic riding organization that operates out of Greenbriar just east of Spruce Meadows. They are a really great organization and the organizer, Yvonne, is super nice. OPENING GAITS THERAPEUTIC RIDING SOCIETY OF CALGARY
There is an organization in the area that I would recommend avoiding; pm me for the name and reason if you'd like.

If you can't find anywhere to donate some of it, you can also haul it to the Tack Collector and they'll sell it and give you 20-30% of the income. And they'll keep it until it sells.
Here's their Facebook Group.

you could try charity auctions but then again why not donate them to a friend... An HF Member Needs Our Help!

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

That was a great idea. I found a local group just up the road from me and gave them 75% of the riding equipment I had left.

I think the quicker I can move all that stuff out of the house, the better and easier it will be for me to move onto the next chapter in life.

So here it is. I've just listed a lot of tack and various horse care items up for sale; all those things are being listed for very cheap(only a fraction of the price new), so I can sell it quickly.

Now considering donating all this stuff that does not sell over to a facility that could use it. Some rescue or rehab facility.

PLEASE do not hassle me with pm's to get free stuff, because I won't send it over.I really would like your help tho in trying to find a good rescue facility that could use this stuff.

Thanks for taking a peak
have you thought about taking up driving
